In addition to $REMOTE_ADDR, some firewalls provide an $X-Forwarded-For (or
similar) header, if their goal is not to mask IPs in the first place.  Might
be worth recording those.

Bottom line, though, is that somebody that really wants to spoof their IP
address, you'll never be able to back-track them.
